Failed a lot?
 

I’ve beaten a gen 1 early serial vr150 along with an early serial vr50 they’ve yet to fail, guess I’m lucky?

Agreed!!  In addition, have the Gen 2 gotten an upgrade with stronger, bigger spool shafts, gears??

I think all of the issues are drag being too tight

I know the drag and main shaft was upgraded, but was the anti reverse upgraded?   Past few weeks fishing and talking to a few guys on the beach with gen 1 VR 150 and VR200, the anti reverse occasionally stops working for them on fish hook ups.   Hopefully, it's not the same on the Gen2.

I’ve put the GEN 2 VR50 through some big fish and while the drag is not Shimano Stella smooth it works just fine and I’m very pleased with the reel

Don’t know if they upgraded the anti reverse. Hopefully someone can confirm for the OP. 
 

I have a very early Gen 1 VR50 and it’s performed flawlessly. I also owned a Gen 1 175 and blew the anti reverse twice on it before fixing it and selling it.
